of this unfold. but let's bring in our law enforcement analyst here with us in boston. julia, come on over here. >> all right. >> let's talk first of all about john king's reporting substantial progress in the criminal investigation here in boston, significant development. we don't know what that progress is. but you know what, john is joining us on the phone right now. so let's talk to john. john, go ahead and tell us what you can. >> wolf, i'm on my way to you now. i want to report some breaking news information from two sources. one is a boston law enforcement source who tells me they believe they do have a significant breakthrough in the investigation. this source is calling this substantial progress. that source declined to be more specific but said to anticipate more details later today. now, i want to give you some information -- initial information important from a second source who has been briefed on the investigation. and i am told by sources that both governor deval patrick and mayor mannino and after the boston commissioner after one of the briefings this morning went to talk to th
are you learning? >> wolf, a law enforcement official told me today that authorities are preparing for a long and slow investigation here and it starts with pieces of the explosive devices scattered along an enormous crime scene. even before the dust started to settle, authorities were asking what kind of explosive device created this. the picture of the bombs now starting to emerge is that they were deadly but crude. a federal law enforcement official with knowledge of the boston bomb investigation tells cnn the bombs were hidden in bags inside a metal pressure cooker. a law enforcement source also told cnn that it's likely but not certain that a timing device was used to detonate the bomb. emergency room doctors said they believed the bombs contained bbs and nails intended by the bomber to kill or maim as many people as possible. >> there were a variety of sharp objects that we found in their bodies, probably this bomb had multiple metallic fragments in them and we removed them. >> mike bouchard is a former top official with the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. >> it cou
hearing is that it is what's called a bolo, be on the lookout. this was from law enforcement agencies, a law enforcement bulletin given to other investigators and all police in the area to be on the lookout for what they're describing as someone who is dark kskinned, possibly a foreign accent. they have no suspects in custody at this time. this person might have been carrying a black backpack and wearing a sweatshirt and may have been trying to get into the restricted area around where the blast went off before the explosion happened. now doctors are also, according to our sources and information learned by colleagues, are removing ball bearings from some of the people being treated, one of the victims at one of the local 4078hospitals there. this could indicate what the explosive devices were made of. it's described as screwed and sometimes small. there were said to be at least two unexploded devices. my sources are telling me one of the things they're doing, john, are to pick those apart. they would to get the dna evidence for the way they were constructed. as of now, no one is maki
it with a constitutional law attorney and former deputy assistant attorney general under president bush. he joins us now. i wasn't even aware this could be done in national security cases. tell us about how it works. >> sure. it's a rare exception. basically what it does is it allows law enforcement to delay issuing a suspect his miranda rights for a limited period to enable law enforcement to get information that would be relevant to public safety. for example, in this case one of the things we want to ask this guy is: is there another attack that might be imminent? who are you working with? are you part of a larger network? questions aimed at making sure public safety is protected, making sure we get any information that is time sensitive right now before he lawyers up and doesn't want to talk with us anymore. >>alisyn: we know that is vitally important because apparently the suspect planted other pipe bombs or explosives, at least, along the chase route. so they somehow knew that when they were trying to get away they had even, you know, planted other things to try to hurt and inflict more harm. so thi
knit community. all right, poppy harlow, thank you. >>> the fbi is the lead law enforcement agency right now in this bombing investigation. that is in coordination with state and local police. susan candiotti on the very first steps of the investigation. good morning, susan. what are you hearing? >> hi, john. they certainly haven't stopped since all this started. they're working around the clock actively as you indicated earlier, a lot of things to pursue. they're talking to witnesses and some of those witnesses are even those who have been hospitalized after this event. now no one is being called a suspect at this time. we do understand that one of the people they're speaking with according to sources is someone described as a saudi national whose one of his legs was wounded. that person is under guard at the hospital now. again, there is a large police presence at the hospital. we're told not to read anything special into this. and we are also learning about that one injured person that they are not saying that he is involved. we do know that the injury, of course, was a result o
will prosecute this terrorist through our civil system of justice. underu.s. law, the united states citizens can not be tried rather in military commissions. martha: but house armed services commission buck mckeown argues that the white house should reconsider. he says, quote, it seems premature to declare that we will not treat tsarnaev as an enemy combatant since we don't know about his affiliations. clearly american citizens must be tried to civilian court, but the same citizen viciously attacked his countrymen, should be exploited for his intelligence value before any trial begins. that will be a debate that rages on for some time on this issue. we'll talk more later in the show with former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. bill: looking forward to that coming up here. meanwhile the feds want to talk to the widow of the suspect, tamerlan. she is mother of 3-year-old daughter between the two. the her lawyer said talks are underway with the feds how to proceed with that. he revealed on the last day tamerlan was home when his wife left for work. martha: well the officers who capturedded dzhokh
information, john, coming from the boston globe this morning. according to a law enforcement official the "boston globe" is saying that 30 people were transferred after the attack to hospitals under a code red. that basically means with life-threatening injuries. so that law enforcement official telling the newspaper that could mean that the number of fatalities could rise. we are in the very early stages of knowing how these people will do, even after they get out of initial surgery. some, we're told, will have to go through multiple surgeries after that. >> poppy harlow. our thanks to you. those numbers that you bring up are what are so startling to so many people. one doctor overnight i heard say it was just depressing what he was seeing. another word you could perhaps use, chris, i suppose is infuriating. >> i'm sure. but the bottom line is no matter how he was feeling it's what these medical professionals were doing. if you're seeing pictures of what people were dealing with when those bombs went off you'd be amazed the death toll is not so much higher right now. no question phen
it into law. that undertaking and many others, john berry made a real difference of the more than 62,000 federal workers and everyone else who called my district home. just as we look to our federal workers to watch out for us, our federal workers look to john to watch out for them, to make sure they have a safe work environment, that their paychecks will arrive on time and the benefits they earn are the ones they receive. under president clinton, john served as deputy assistant secretary and acting assistant secretary for law enforcement at the treasury department. overseeing the united states secret service and the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms. and he later moved to the interior department where he was assistant secretary for policy, management and budget, essentially the manager of the department of interior. before coming to the office of personnel management, john spent nearly a decade working on conservation as director of the fish and wildlife foundation, and then arguably the job he perhaps has enjoyed most, he became director of the national zoo. at the national z
that we all have given through congress. i don't know what the law is spent we will make a request on that and appreciate your follow up on it. we go now to karen bass of california. >> thank you, mr. chair. i want to congratulate secretary kerry on your appointment, and also join my colleagues in expressing my condolences. >> thank you. >> i look forward to working with you, and especially working with the committed men and women at the state department. i have to tell you that i've really enjoyed working directly with the state department and i'm honored to have an excellent pearson fell in my office who i am looking forward to continuing to work with me. as the ranking member of the african subcommittee all wanted to share with you several priority issues i hope you will consider. first of all come u.s.-africa trade relations. number two, the importance of development assistance programs, including global hiv/aids funding through pepfar. number three, support for peacekeeping operations. as you know the u.n. is considering establishing a peacekeeping force and mali and there's a
in west, that best would come from law enforcement or emergency personnel on the scene there. >> glenn robinson, ceo of hillcrest medical center in waib waco, texas, thank you so much for joining us. please, keep up the work there tonight and we'll speak to you again. really appreciate it. >>> up next on "early start" law enforcement officials saying that they are making significant progress as they search for suspects here in boston to find out who was behind those boston marathon bombings. for his small. can i get the smith contract, please? thank you. that's three new paper shredders.

ammunition magazines, we have the toughest gun laws and the lowest fatality in the nation. this isn't a mystery. if you want to lower injuries and deaths do what massachusetts has done. if you want to raise deaths and injuries do nothing, which is what the congress has done. kim ruing and john rosenthal thank you so much this evening. i know we'll be talking about this in the future. we're pleased to be joined by rolling stone editor, the great tim dickinson. they called today a shameful day in washington. >> it's a shameful day for democracy when you have 90% of americans foiled by the senate. what kind of a democracy do we live in when we can't have an up or down vote that on something that has 90% support in the country. >> john: president obama also said that this marked only round one in the fight for gun control legislation. let me ask you tim what do you think comes next specifically for gun control legislation more universally. >> well, i don't think that manchin-toomey has much of a future unless there is an soap-like up rising on the twitter. but americans are distracted.
the devastation. we tried to get as close to the scene as we could. law enforcement officials were relying on eyewitness accounts and what law officials are telling us, and like you said, scene like iraq, bolike a bomb went off, tornadic. >> i know that earlier there were reports that there were a lot of firefighters from other areas, emergency personnel that were going over to the scene and if they had enough emergency personnel. have you seen a big presence there? >> reporter: the presence is massive. in fact, they're telling emergency personnel from surrounding towns, we're good, we don't need you anymore. we don't need you anymore. they're telling the public, go to abbott high school, drop off your goods, give blood, that's how can you tep around here. in terms of emergency services, the response was incredible. they're fine. it's now a recovery mission. again, as soon as the sun comes up they expect to learn much, much more. one official i talked to could not confirm the number of casualties. said there were causalitieses. i asked him how bad, he said, it's bad. >> we're going to chec
're sharing it with other law enforcement agencies, just trying to see if anybody knows this person and there is to doubt a strategy to that. but they don't want to get the information or any pictures out of the public yesterday to perhaps clue this person in on where they're at in the investigation. so we can't independently verify any of those other pictures that are floating out there and i can tell you that the authorities have not officially released any pictures. >> has there been a sense of frustration from the authorities, scott, because of all of the, you know, head fakes and misinformation that has gotten out, some of the early stuff that's been out, also because of potential media that's made it easy to make these pictures go around very quickly. >> well, i'm sure there's a great deal of frustration. we've with he got the fbi's statement that came midafternoon yesterday after the false reports of an arrest. that was pretty strongly worded that said that basically admonished the media to vet your information better. that said that the reports of an arrest were erroneous an
. homeland security correspondent bob orr is in washington following the investigation. >> reporter: law enforcement officials say the bombs contained an explosive similar to black powder. they were laced with bbs, ball bearings and nails. trauma surgeon said many of the injured have multiple shrapnel wounds. >> they are numerous, numerous. there are people who have 10, 20, 30, 40 of them in their body or more. >> reporter: investigators believe the bombs were hidden in black nylon backpacks. and housed inside sealable metal pots called pressure cookers. pressure cooker bombs can help boost the power of relatively small devices by briefly constraining the blast. and when the cookers do explode, they can add large chunks of metal to the shrapnel spray. the i.e.d.s have been popular with terrorists. al qaeda published a how-to recipe in an on-line magazine. several of the bombs were used in the 2006 attack on trains in mumbai india. in 2004 and 2010, the department of homeland security warned law enforcement that pressure cooker bombs could present a threat in the u.s. in the failed time s
by will you -- must include the contributions of the transgendered? by law. you will have to have pages on transgendered contributions. people who were crossed over sex, or dressed in the other sex. clothing. isn't that absurd? isn't that totalitarian? i thought the purpose of the textbook was to tell the truth, not make groups feel good. but as i point out in the book, leftism is overwhelmingly rooted in feelings. >> host: dennis prager is the author. "still the best hope" is the name of his recent best seller. louis from florida, you're on the air. you're talking with dennis prager. >> caller: i'd like to ask mr. prayinger and his ilk what he just said about truth, why should people believe the bible when that's the biggest novel ever written? who believes the earth is 5,000 years old? how can you follow a book that tells you the world is 5,000 years old and hisclass commentary about the christian schools and the seminary, how does he say something like that and he wants to be honest? i know this man is a right winger, and he wouldn't fifth credit to anybody, but my main question is,
set up for law enforcement. we have a command post set up for the emergency units shlgs also. and we still have a triage center set up at the community center right over here. >> what's the status of the plant? >> it's still smoldering. right now, they did not give us any update on it. it was smoldering, still, and there still is active, you know, other ingredients there on the facility. so we don't want that to explode again. so, right now, we cannot get fire fighters in there. we're worried about people right now, not property. we want people to be safe that. 's our main goal right now. getting people safe and getting them out of there. >> we're being told hundreds of people have been wounded in this fire and explosion. joining us now on the line is keith hopkins. he's from the providence health center. he is in waco texas. mr. hopkins, just tell us,what sort of injuries are you treating people for after this explosion? right now, we've treated broken bones, head injuries and quite a few from respiratory distress from the an hydrous ammonia. >> we have to be very careful in terms o
